Numerous licensed and some free script-driven apps have encoded program code, which is not human readable. The concept behind this is to prevent the reverse engineering as well as the unauthorized use of such applications. One of the most popular encryption software tools used for this purpose is known as Zend Guard and it's widespread because it can be used to alter any kind of PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 code. The sole way for the encoded files to run properly on a web server subsequently is if a second tool called Zend Optimizer is available. In the event that you would like to use any kind of paid web software which needs Zend Optimizer, you should make sure that it is set up on the server where you'll host your site. In addition, sites which require the tool usually perform better because their code is already precompiled and optimized, which means that it is executed quicker.
